Originally released in 1993, the ASICS GEL-Lyte V manages to bridge the gap between retro running and the current climate of streetwear culture. As well as its aesthetically pleasing silhouette, the GEL-Lyte V is easily one of the most comfortable kicks on the market, making it a cult favourite in the sneaker community. For their #HOTTESTMONTH campaign Foot Locker EU will be exclusively stocking the black/white and the tan/white colourways. Both bring a simple but effective tone to the iconic model; the upper is built from suede and mesh with embossed logos, the midsole uses ASICS' signature GEL Cushioning technology for comfort, and the rubber outsole is applied for traction and durability. The tan/white colourway is inspired by ASICS' previous GEL-Lyte sneakers; the ASICS x Monkey Time GEL-Lyte V 'Sand Layer' and the GEL-Lyte III 'Honey Mustard'.
Both colourways of the ASICS GEL-Lyte V are available right now for £99.99 in various Foot Locker stores across Europe.
